not help save those people. >> greta: congressman, thank you sir. so, is the obama administration deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that emp
. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every month keep up with the increase of people in the working-age population, and to recover all of those jobs that had been lost. so that's where we stand right now. 125,000 jobs is the forecast for today. about an hour and a half, and 7.9% is the unemployment rate. it's the last big hurdle before the election. the last big piece of economic news for both campaigns, and for people to weigh before they make the decision on who to vote for. >> it's not just economic news. it has all the political implications. especially in the final days. that chart we've seen on the political campaign on both sides of the debate. christine, than
there is a reason why the obama administration is not providing more details and answers on the libya attack. >> they don't want the truth to come out about benghazi, libya because if it comes out and crystal clear to the american people. it would show a failure of leadership by president obama. >> the obama campaign said they want to wait until the review board 99s the investigation before making assessment about the attack. the president is clear and our record showed it and as information became available we made it available to the american people it is it a tragedy and it is not time for politicizing the tragedy. >> the state department reports that it will be finished in december. >> thank you very much. >> it is it an all out sprint to election day. governor romney can vancing the state that could decoid the winner. nominees are pulling out stop to sway undecided voters. president obama stirring up controversy after something he said on the campaign trail. the comments that has the working to explain his word choice. stay with us. . where others fail, droid powers through. introducing
of business under an obama administration, making sure that alternative energy companies getting more advantage over other types of firms? i mean, yikes. >> paul: my only problem with that ad i think it's a distraction, in the sense that romney ought to be focused directly at the camera, here is my plan and contrast with the president. that's when he's most effective. gentlemen and kim we'll continue after the break. much more ahead on this final weekend before the election, with october's unemployment numbers in, will the economy take center stage once again in the campaign's final days? from local communities to local businesses. the potential of yelp unlocked. nyse euronext. unlocking the world's potential. s >> the unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 7.9%, with employers adding 171,000 jobs. in the final measure of the u.s. economy's health ahead of tuesday's election. so, james, is this going to affect the campaign much, do you think? >> i think it does, i think it confirms that president obama's economic policies have failed on their own terms, that we still officially have
fuel to the disaster zone, sending 24 million gallons of extra gas, a welcome sign. the obama administration is hiring trucks to bring the gas to staging areas. all this is unfolding four days before the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney ea
that in a second. let me talk about the political mistakes made by the obama administration. passing a plan through two houses of congress it controlled, not bothering to garner a single vote from the republicans -- >> but they tried to do that. look at the negotiations with chuck grassley. how many months did those drag on for? olympia snowe said she wouldn't do it because no other republican would. >> they had more time to try and enough was at stake, and the bill is significant enough that they should have made more of an effort because now managing political damage, including the very irony of my piece and why i'm here is that they have no political sport. conservatives, yes. and i'll agree with you on the other point. the conservatives have not helped. by abandoning some of these ideas and simply branding this thing a government takeover of health care, which is equally as unhelpful to all of us, hasn't done them a bit of good as well. by even the way they've branded this as obamacare, as if that were pejorative, as if that were a negative shows that there's political disregard and disrespect
: austan goolsbee said a few moments ago said the four years of the obama administration created more new jobs, net new jobs than the first four years of the bush's first term. is he right? >> i honestly would have to go back and look at the numbers. neither recovery was as vigorous as one might want. but the right benchmark, it strikes me, it was in your conversation with austan, really is the reagan '81-'82 recovery. that, too, was have a very deep recession. that recession also had a sharp financial element to it. we can have a v-shaped recovery, there's nothing about it that makes it not so. stuart: it the key to tax reform, by tax reform, lower rates on corporations and individuals, and get rid of some loopholes, is that the key to it. >> i think it's an important element and what's first key is to remind the american people, we can do this, we can grow more rapidly, it requires a different policy mix and yes, tax reform is a big part of it, on the corporate side and the individual side. stuart: glenn hubbard, a pleasure, don't be a stranger, come on back, love to see you. thank you,
the obama administration took over this, their main objective was to keep costs high, at least to keep union costs high. >> that's the point with the pension. charles: and burdens general motors to this day which is why we're owed so much money and we're in trouble. >> what bothers me more about the fiasco, the fact that senior debt, and when ways with a in the business, make less debt, but have senior security and they ignored bankruptcy law. charles: and a lot of people, their rational, this would only hurt the fat cats and when we know this hurt a whole lot of people. >> what about the delphi investors who really lost on this one. let's take a look what they did in the gm bankruptcy, it's another case of sub bosub board nating one group. and board says, off shore earnings and makes sense they would not issue their earnings when the markets are closed. you would think they would wait until the market is open. does that mean that ford had, as you said, a good reason to issue them because they were so good. does that mean that people that are issuing them maybe are under what was estimated?
served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
it overreads -- i mean, look, there's no question that the obama administration is both trying to do right by policy and governance and by politics the week out from an election. we've heard you guys on the show the last couple days where this is a place where good government rhymes with good politics. it's not trying to elbow its way into new york at the statue of liberty. they're saying hey, you guys want us to come? we'll be there. governor christie thinks it's good for his state. he doesn't want a political backdrop either. but he wants to get help for the people of his state. mayor bloomberg has been obviously disappointed with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the presiden
by their numbers that are going to cripple us as, quote, big government. >> "wall street journal," barack obama -- when the history of this administration is written, maybe someone will note the difference. here is that man who promised a transformative presidency, and it amounted to a two-prong attempt to impose from one side a version of european social democracy by way of obama care. and from the other side a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we k
cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. rich: president obama says the position would streamline the federal government for businesses. in wisconsin the president is arguing his administration has made progress and a vote for governor romney is a vote for president george w. bush's policies. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> the candidates continue to sprint to the. election officials are insuring americans can the next week even with power outages in the contest and key swing state of ohio. the secretary of state office tells fox business all polling place is currently have power for early voting and the state anticipates a smooth election day. dennis: rich edson. cheryl: on the topic of election day five days from the election ap has filed the catawba campaign donors. for president obama more than three million each from chicago media group founder and hedge fund manager and hollywood fi
-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only
switch players in the white house, let's say president obama comes in. will it change? do you fear-- i know you've addressed this in the past in several administrations, that there's just a tone in washington, that makes getting anything done impossible? >> yeah, i've been down there and unfortunately that's the tone and whatever you say it's hard for the administration to get everything done. they've handed over the the keys to the congress and the congress is filled with idea logs willing to sacrifice the future of the country in order to push their own point. you've got to hope this time around, whoever is the next president will be able to walk across the aisle, get some compromises and more important than that, pick the right priorities, obviously, there's a fiscal cliff, right, we've got to take care of that. beyond that, there are multiple things that have to be done about the economy, the most important is having a job friendly creation opportunity. it's not easy, so, wall street, i think, i think markets will go up no matter whoever wins. >> after we've heard, markets, pressag
that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm not aware that that's ever happened. i mean, it certainly happened in particular jurisdictions. you remember in 9/11, they moved the mayoral election in new york city. so certainly there's press department for in the catastrophic circumstance moving the date, but i've never seen that in a presidential election and i'd be very surprised if that happens. >> john harwood, stay safe today. appreciate your perspective on all of this. we'll still be dealing with this football metaphor when the game ends. >> when we co
to you let you and our viewers know, we are waiting for president obama at the white house to give an update on the hurricane preps and what the white house administration has done so far. live pictures out of the briefing room as reporters stand there and basically give a preview of what effect the president is able to walk out to the podium. dwoent know whether or not he will actually take a few questions. we anticipate that there will be questions, but he certainly will have a statement getting an update. he has met in the situation room. he has talked with leaders of fema. he has held some news -- well, not news conferences, but, rather, conference calls with some of his key administration figures to talk about what needs to happen. he has also called a state of emergency in those states along the northeast that are going to be severely impacted by this weather event. alison, i want to ask you very briefly as we wait for the president to step up there to the mike. the importance of the job numbers here because when you talk about the fact that we might not get that on friday, t
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
